Los Angeles, CA — Adult superstar Allie Haze announces her amicable departure from Vivid Entertainment. During her yearlong contract with Vivid, Allie starred in notable features (Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody) and vignettes (Allie Haze: True Sex). Coupled with the success of 2011 releases, such as New Sensations’ Lost and Found, Allie was named the 2012 Performer of the Year by XCritic.com and TLARaw.com. Interested in pursuing more diverse visibility, Allie is taking her career in a new direction – one sure to excite her fans.

“I learned so much about myself and this amazing industry during my time with Vivid,” says Allie Haze. “I am forever grateful to everyone at Vivid who helped shape my career into what it is today.”

Allie continues, “I’m thrilled about this next phase. There are many great producers in the industry and each has been supportive of my career. I’m not sure yet which direction I will go, but the options are limitless and I feel blessed. This is a great time to be an adult performer!”

Allie Haze is represented by LA Direct Models. Owner Derek Hay states, “Allie has shown great poise and dedication in her year with Vivid. She has shown maturity beyond her years in her movie performances and handled her appearance and convention work, in an exemplary manner. Once more a free agent – no doubt many studios will wish to include Allie in their movies.”

When announcing Allie as the 2012 Performer of the Year, XCritic.com Editor Chris Thorne wrote, “Allie Haze showed that the girl next door could be sweet, charming, and absolutely naughty. She helped make ‘Lost and Found’ our top pick for the year and then showed just how hot she could get in Raw 6…Allie Haze breathed life in a tough year for porn, she was exactly what the industry needed, exactly when it needed it.”

Fans and consumers of TLARaw.com cast their votes by the thousands to make Allie the site’s 2012 Performer of the Year. The honor followed her TLARaw.com 2011 award for Best New Starlet. The site commented, “Allie Haze clearly has fans in TLA customers because this year, they bestowed upon her the most important award possible for any adult performer, Female Performer of the Year. Led by her dark, milk chocolate tinged nipples, it would be an understatement to say this past year was huge for Allie. Starring in nearly every porn movie filmed between July and October, Allie was also present at almost every adult industry event that occurred… even some that didn’t actually happen but Allie was there just in case they did…We can only imagine how high this stunner’s star will rise in the industry…”

Allie’s success has transcended the adult industry. In addition to landing numerous magazine covers, the all-natural brunette found mainstream success. Under the name Brittney Joy, she was selected to star in 7 mainstream feature films in the remake of the famed Emmanuelle series. After being showcased at the Cannes Film Festival, the series made its television debut on Cinemax in October 2011.
